Sizzling Tex-Mex Fajitas Recipe

Sizzling Tex-Mex Fajitas Recipe

My family likes garlic, so I dreamed up this delicious marinade for our summer fajita dinners. The marinade only needs 8 hours to work its magic, but it’s even better left overnight. Try it on chicken breasts, too.—Karyn "Kiki" Power, Arlington, Texas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup beef broth
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 envelope savory herb with garlic soup mix, divided
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Liquid Smoke, optional
  • 2 pounds beef skirt steak, cut into 4 to 6-inch portions
  • 2 large onions, sliced
  • 1 medium green pepper, sliced
  • 1 medium sweet yellow pepper, sliced
  • 12 flour tortillas (8 inches)
  • Salsa, shredded cheese, guacamole and sour cream, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the broth, lime juice, 1 tablespoon oil, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, salt, 1 teaspoon soup mix, mustard, pepper, cayenne and Liquid Smoke if desired. Add the steaks; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
  • 2. In a large bowl, combine onions, green pepper, yellow pepper and remaining oil and soup mix. Place half of mixture on each of two double thicknesses of heavy-duty foil (about 12 in. square). Fold foil around vegetables and seal tightly.
  • 3. Drain beef and discard marinade. Grill steaks and vegetable packets, covered, over medium heat for 10-13 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°) and vegetables are tender, turning steaks once.
  • 4. Open foil packets carefully to allow steam to escape. Thinly slice steaks; place beef and vegetables on tortillas. Serve with salsa, cheese, guacamole and sour cream if desired. Yield: 6 servings.
